Victorian Mourning Dress Underpinnings

Below are pictures of corset, chemise, and petticoat that I'm making for the Mourning Dress. They are cotton with just a little color (it's probably not appropriate but, I just couldn't resist. Really, I was trying to dye the cotton to match the vintage bobbin lace but when it came out mauve, I left it. The ribbon is vintage grosgrain, plum in color. There is a hoop skirt under the petticoat, it's the one pictured in the underpinnings section of my site. There is also a matching pair of crotchless draws (not shown).
